Irene Pansadoro has been a member of the professional design industry since 1991.
The combination of Italian flair, International influences and longstanding experience enables her to conceptualize a unique design perspective, creating environments that have earned international recognition.
Irene started out in architecture before realizing her real passion was for interiors.
Moving from La Sapienza University in Rome to the Inchbald School of Design in London she graduated in Interior Design with top Awards. A fundamental mentor for Irene has been Italian interior designer Toni Facella Sensi, renowned for his prestigious work all over the world, with whom she worked at the beginning of her career. Irene then broadened her design views by working on set design on Franco Zeffirelli's Jane Eyre and as a stylist for the World of Interiors magazine.
In 1996 Rome was chosen to open her own studio, designing luxury apartments and villas, combining her unique style and strong project management skills, while collaborating with American firm HDC Hotel Design Consultants (formerly Barry Design Associates), renowned for their hotels all over the world, where she was Associate Director of Design for ten years.
Irene still resides in Rome, where she was born, but thanks to her international experience and communication skills (Irene is fluent in English, Spanish and French) she works worldwide for hotel chains such as Starwood (now Marriott) and Hilton with affiliate studios in London, Cairo and Abu Dhabi.
Among her numerous international luxury hotel projects we find landmark properties such as the Westin Europa & Regina in Venice, the Westin Palace, the Principe di Savoia and the Diana Majestic in Milan, the Turnberry Golf Resort and Spa in Scotland and the Westin Excelsior Hotel in Rome with its "Villa La Cupola" (the biggest suite in Europe 1,100 sqm.) done in collaboration with HDC srl.
Hotel Design has become Irene's core business and she is often asked to give lectures for professionals in institutions such as Milan Polytechnic (MIED International Executive Master in Interior Design) and the Guangzhou Design Week.
